Since its inauguration in 2013, Open House Hobart has quickly grown to become one of Hobart’s most widely attended architecture events. Open House Hobart has opened the doors to incredible buildings and sites across the city and surrounds, offering an extraordinary opportunity to experience the city and meet the people who design, build and preserve Hobart. The program is an opportunity for building owners, managers, custodians and architects to reach a broad cross-section of the community, accessing completely new audiences. None of this would be possible without all of our contributors. Our community is the backbone of the Open House Hobart model and without your generous support, our programs simply could not run. The public’s primary interaction with Open House Hobart is you! Your passion and enthusiasm for the program ensures a successful day for all.
